Bulgaria or Draw

Although Roberto Mancini’s squad is the undeniable favorite, it turns out that the Bulgarian team is a rather unpleasant opponent for Italy. Historically, Squadra Azzurra has never managed to win against when visiting Bulgaria. On 6 such occasions, The Lions have won twice and drawn 4. Betting on something that has never happened so far, at the odds of 13/4 definitely can’t be looked over.


Despite backing Bulgaria to win or draw, we do not change the fact that the Italian squad is heavily favored and the match will be extremely one-sided. It’s almost certain that the hosts will fail to keep a clean sheet, but it will be very hard for them to score. Bulgaria has only scored in 3 of its 6 recent Nations League matches, and it was versus much lesser-ranked sides than Italy.

Under 3.5 Goals

Still a decent wager despite the odds being slightly thin. This pick has hit in 9/10 of the last Bulgaria games, and 7/10 times for Italy.


Roberto Mancini’s squad will look to break the curse

It's a mystery how one of the world's greatest football countries – Italy has never failed to crack Bulgaria at home. However, not only is this statement true for Italy, it's true the other way around. The Lions have never beaten The Blues at home, although this is much more understandable.

The all-time head-to-head stats lean heavily towards Italy's direction. The two squads have played each other 19 times, with Italy winning 10 and Bulgaria only 2. Furthermore, the Italian squad is currently enjoying 22-games in a row without a defeat. Will Mancini's men be able to finally get the first win when visiting Bulgaria is the question in hand. If they do, they will certainly write history. We will find out on Sunday evening!
